A better place to discuss the Drupal doc culture in general is on the 
documentation list.... but as to your specific question:

It is always good manners on drupal.org to edit doc pages that you 
find problems in. If you do not have time or permission to edit the 
doc page, the second best thing is to file an issue in the 
Documentation project issue queue. Terrible things to do include 
flaming the author, or posting your suggestions in a comment on the page.
